Former "Grey’s Anatomy" star Sandra Oh is trying to raise money for a new animated project called "Window Horses." It’s about a young Chinese-Iranian-Canadian poet who goes off in search of her father at a poetry festival.
From NBC Asian America:
The film stars Oh as Rosie and Nancy Kwan — one of Hollywood’s first major stars of Asian descent — as Gloria, Rosie’s overprotective grandmother. Much of the film’s cast has yet to be officially announced, and in an interview with CBC Radio earlier this month, Oh, who also serves as executive producer, said she was searching for actors who would help keep the authenticity of the story.
"I would like to see…the people who are actually the central storytellers be people who are not white," Oh said. "Look at the call sheet and number one, two, three, four, five, and that’s what I’d like to see change."
